frayadjacent: Buffy smirking over Giles with quarterstaff (Default)
This is a two year-old meme by [personal profile] sdwolfpup.  I'm resurrecting it to get myself posting dailyish.

Day 5: If you have ever had a character try to push their way into a vid, what did you do about it?
I can't say that I have.  I am currently discussing with [personal profile] red_satin_doll the awkwardness of including Warren in my Willow vid, but that was intentional.  The basic idea of the vid was to highlight their similarities, to use Warren as a foil for Willow.  I just didn't execute as well as I'd have liked, partly by dropping Warren in unexpectedly halfway through.  

Day 6: When you vid, do you like vidding a certain kind of male or female archetype? (Credit to [ profile] dualbunny for that one!)
Huh.  I don't think so?  I certainly know I'm drawn to certain archetypes when I watch -- most predictably, the Sidekick, but also the Ordinary Person Thrown Into Extraordinary Circumstances and certain types of rebels.  (Though that's a tricky one -- plenty of TV Rebels annoy the shit out of me.) 

I'm more confident saying that, all else being equal, I'm a lot more interested in pretty much any archetypal character if they're not a cis white dude. 

But I'm not sure any of that has obviously translated in my vidding, at least not yet.

Day 7: Have you ever had a vid (of yours) change your opinion of a character?
Well, "Maybe Sparrow" was meant to be a criticism of Wesley, and Angel writers' overidentification with same, but I think I ended up having a bit more sympathy for him.  Only a bit, though.

"Burn the Mazes" helped me detox on my Willow Issues.  I can love the girl again now.

"A Thousand Miles" may have given me some Joan/Sherlock shippery least a few times.

Complete list of questions. )
